Adobe Camera RAW 8.7 question

Older versions of Camera Raw had a setting for changing midtone brightness (gamma) during the image import. I don’t see a way to do that now other than with curves — but curves do not work with gradations or paintbrush adjustment tools. Does anyone know the workaround for affecting just the midtone brightness?

    Does painting on an adjustment layer do what you’re looking for?

      In Photoshop, yes — but I want this to happen before the import.

        I missed that. I thought the whole point of raw is that you import exactly what the camera sensor saw, and do all tweaking afterwards. Adjusting during import seems to make the thing more like parboiled, not raw.
